About Our


Our expertise in heavy-duty cleaning allows us to design and manufacture complex rail car washing systems that provide comprehensive cleaning in combination with superior water recycling and pH control. When complete, you can expect a highly reliable wash system that performs exactly as expected, and requires a minimum level of maintenance.

The following are common wash features of our train wash systems:

Our Custom Train Wash Design Process​

Our global experience has made us an industry leader in customized train car wash systems. Additionally, we have a team of expert electrical, mechanical, and control engineers who provide customized solutions for every project.

All InterClean train wash systems are custom engineered, and can be designed for:

Automatic Drive-Through Wash Systems

Through our custom engineering approach, each system is tailor-made to meet the specific needs of that rail line. This ensures the appropriate solutions are used to construct the wash system and to maintain the condition and appearance of the trains and rail cars.

Our Centri® Spinner is the most effective equipment constructed for locomotive washing. InterClean Centri® Spinners use zero-degree rotating nozzles designed to remain highly effective when cleaning from greater distances. The result is a high-impact spray that applies clean water to the front and rear surfaces of the train removing the film, debris, and iron oxidation (rail dust) from even the hardest-to-reach places without damaging surface features.
Additionally, this system reduces corrosion, life-cycle costs and labor costs while delivering consistent cleaning results.
No matter whether you go with a touchless, friction, or hybrid wash, our train wash systems will reduce corrosion, life-cycle costs, and labor costs while delivering consistent cleaning results. Features of our friction wash system include:

Our Ultra Gantry system is a highly customizable and effective wash solution that can be configured for various wash applications and needs, including train washes. The Ultra Gantry system features vertical and top brush configurations designed to wash the top, rear, front, and sides of train cars. With this system, there is no need to monitor train speed as it remains parked while the Ultra module moves back and forth over the rail cars performing the cleaning. Both the machine and the control software are modularized, enabling our customers to design a unique wash system specific to their needs. Some of the optional extras for the Ultra Gantry series include:
